How to Hard Cook Eggs
Place the eggs in a saucepan.
Make sure they aren’t tightly packed in the pan and have a little wiggle room. Cover with water so that the level is about 1 inch over the eggs.
Set the saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. As soon as the water begins to boil, cover and remove from the heat. Allow to stand for 10 minutes. Uncover and with a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water.
Allow to stand for 10 minutes. The eggs are then ready to color or shell and use!
